'Duck Dynasty' inspires Pa. church to go 'camo'

Posted: Updated:

BRADFORD, Pa. (AP) - A northwestern Pennsylvania pastor inspired by the popular reality TV series "Duck Dynasty" is encouraging his congregation to come to church in camouflage clothing on Sunday.

The Rev. Chris Terbush tells the Bradford Era he's hoping to attract new members to The First Wesleyan Church of Bradford, and to celebrate the state's outdoors heritage on the day before deer season opens Monday.

"Duck Dynasty" chronicles a family known for their long beards and camouflage clothing that has made a fortune making and selling duck decoys to hunters.

The pastor says he might make "Camo Sunday" an annual event if it proves popular. He says he's still working on a sermon that "could very well deal with the subject of camouflage itself."
